Jetten Shipyard ready for further growth

Jul 10, 2017

Jetten Brothers sell Yard to Managing Director Grim

The brothers, Marcel and Sander Jetten, have sold their yard Jetten Shipyard in Sneek to Managing Director Jeannot Grim. By handing over management and ownership, they want to give the company a solid foundation for further international growth.

The Jetten family remains closely involved and remain working at the Frisian site, which is currently experiencing a strong international growth. Jetten Shipyard has been active abroad for many years and is trendsetter by constantly development and innovation with building aluminium and steel yachts. Also because of winning the European Power Boat of the Year Award 2015 and 2017, the international interest continues to grow.                                                                                       

Marcel Jetten explains the sale: “Twenty years ago, I founded a yard with my brother Sander, after working for third parties for many years. Developing and building boats is, we both think, the most beautiful thing there is. Managing a developing company led to decreasing our attention from that more and more. By selling our shares we now can fully focus on what we are best in.”

Marcel Jetten will continue to focus on development and construction of custom yachts. Sander Jetten, alongside engineering, will focus on the maintenance and refit of motor yachts. The aftersales of the yard is in this way responding to the growing demand of customers, also internationally.                           

Jeannot Grim has been Managing Director of Jetten Shipyard as of the end of 2016 and will remain active in that position. “Operationally not much will change, I have many years of experience in managing companies, also internationally, and I think that I can give this strong growing company a solid foundation on the worldwide market. Scaling up and meeting global demands requires organisational development and safeguarding of the high quality level, which Jetten Shipyard is known for.”
